Shopping in Cavelossim
Calm, quiet and peaceful Cavelossim offers its guests surprisingly great opportunities for shopping.
Most of retail places where you can buy whatever you want and need are located along the main street of this tiny cute town. These are basically small picturesque shops and stalls where you can purchase various souvenirs, food, books, clothes, trinkets and everything what you can only dream (or maybe you have even never dreamed) about having.
Small gifts and souvenirs are mostly made from wood, leather, stone; many of them are decorated with beads. Things made of cashmere, silk and wool carpets, jewelry and spices will also attract you attention and leave you pleased and satisfactory.
Sellers and traders are polite and friendly, but sometimes too much persistent. To get the normal price for the product you have chosen you must and will need to have to haggle. Otherwise, the tourist is risking to pay 2-3 times greater than it is acceptable.
In jewelry stores you should also be careful. Among plenty of high quality products made of precious stones and metals you can often find perfectly made fakes.
Cavelossim resort has also one of the biggest shopping centers in South Goa - "Saga" shopping mall. Here, except all we have already mentioned above, you can buy for relatively little money Indian designers and fashion brands clothing.
In two town pharmacies not only medicines and drugs are sold, but also such things as, for example, sim-cards. You can also exchange money here.
